Klay Thompson hit 8-of-16 shots for 22 points, two rebounds, a steal, a block and four more 3-pointers as the Warriors finally saw their 16-game winning streak come to an end after a 105-98 loss at Memphis.
While you won't often hear Thompson's name in the MVP conversation, it should probably be included in a list that will include John Wall, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, James Harden, Marc Gasol, Anthony Davis, Kyle Lowry and a few others. He's averaging 21.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.9 blocks and 2.9 3-pointers on the season, with shooting percentages of 45 percent from the floor, 43 percent from downtown and 87 percent from the line. And for good measure, he's also averaging just 2.2 turnovers per game. Stud.
